The Nikon AF-S 50mm f/1.4G lens is a fast, fixed focal-length Nikkor lens with a built-in Silent Wave Motor (SWM) to enable smooth and quiet autofocus. The high-quality optical system delivers fantastic image quality, minimising both flare and chromatic aberration. Ideal for portrait photography, general use, and video recording, this lens has an ultra-fast maximum aperture of f1.4, with a unique rounded 9-blade diaphragm for smooth, natural bokeh. More
With a maximum aperture of f/1.4 and Nikon’s unique rounded 9-blade diaphragm, the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G renders a remarkably smooth, natural background blur (bokeh). This makes it an ideal lens for portraits - subjects can be isolated from their backgrounds for a dramatic composition.
The AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G offers a classic, “normal” (50mm) angle of view when used on an FX-format DSLR or 35mm film camera. When used on a DX-format camera, however, it becomes an ideal portrait lens, approximating the moderate telephoto perspective of a 75mm lens on an FX-format DSLR or 35mm film camera. Close focusing to 1.5 ft extends versatility.
The AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G allows for a comfortable working distance between you and your subject - producing a more natural response.
When used on an FX DSLR, the perspective rendered by the 50mm nearly matches the human eye. The background blur is exaggerated thanks to its f/1.4 aperture. This results in a natural appearance of the subject within the image. When used on a DX DSLR, the 50mm lens acts as a 75mm portrait lens with the subject filling more of the frame.
SWM = Silent Wave Motor - AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor, which represents a significant advance in AF lens technology.
M/A = Manual/Automatic - Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens.
SIC = Super Integrated Coating - Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.

First Class Lens
I purchased this lens (as against the less expensive 1.8) mainly as a portrait lens for my D7100 and to be able to shoot in low light without flash. At 1.4 the bokeh is excellent and at smaller apertures pictures are pin sharp. It also has the added advantage of being an FX lens should I ever decide to purchase a full-frame body. An excellent investment. Go for it if you can.

Lovely little lens.
This lens stays on my camera if I'm indoors, super fast and great in low-light situations.The only mark down is the plastic construction which for some could mean a less durable lens but not really a problem for me, I suppose it helps to keep the weight down.

Save some cash and choose the 1.8 instea
I have owned the 50mm 1.8d, 1.8g & 1.4g, and this is by far the worst of them all.I am a semi pro wedding photographer, and use a D700 as my main camera. I upgraded though the 50mm range until I reached the 1.4g. I have been so dissapointed with it's performance that I have 'downgraded' back to the 1.8g, which to me is a much better behaved lens in every way, and you only lose 2/3 of a stop from the 1.4.Not that that really matters, because the 1.4 is extremely soft wide open, so you have to step it down to 2.0 to get the same sharpness as the 1.8 anyway, losing the advantage of the faster glass!Vignetting is seriously bad (and that's coming from a wedding photographer) as is the barrel distortion.I found myself correcting all my shots in software, before re-adding the vignette. Unacceptable.Save yourself £100+ and buy the cheaper and far more superior 1.8, it's a very underrated lens and is definitely the better buy. It has the same Moisute protection too!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Fantastic little lens!
By Rich the techie
I bought this lens to take pics of my baby nephew, and I'm really pleased with the quality of them. Fast and easy to use, with or without flash. Perfect when he's on the move and won't sit still
Sharp focussing are the key feature of this lens. Obviously the f1.4 aperture is a big advantage
